Waldowood 2010

A radically new Waldowood

Waldowood 2010

Waldowood 2010 was nothing less than the reinvention of Waldowood with many firsts. Among other things Waldowood 2010 was the first town:

  • To have six simultaneously operating train lines.
  • To have six closed-loop rail lines. (No other Waldowood ever had even five such lines!)
  • To feature a dedicated passenger train–the Amtrak Acela.
  • To run a N gauge train.
  • To have a true “subway” that ran “underground.”
  • To feature a “Restaurant Curve” and E(ntertainment)-Zone.
  • To have a section that was built on a platform over railyards.

If these firsts weren’t enough, Waldowood 2010 also debuted the C-Factory Dome, a multi-use sports stadium, replacing the late and lamented WaldoDome that had collapsed back in the 20th century. (Due to licensing restrictions and Waldowood’s own regulations against commercialization, the full name of the Dome cannot be mentioned. Ask Mrs. Mommy Ma’am if you cannot figure out what the C stands for.)

Church Street Platform

In a year in which the word platform was a bad thing, the Church Street platform, built over several railyards, helped expand the residential area of Waldowood.
In the picture at left, the platform is the yellow, blue, and purple girders from which a Waldowood sign was hung. Also seen in the picture are the three closed-loop rail lines, including a true “sub”way line, the innermost loop. (Tthe first car of the subway train is approaching the commerical plaza station.)
Also seen in this picutre is the new N-gauge Acela passenger line, about to go under a silver gider bridge on which sits a return visitor in his police box.

Lower Waldowood

The underground level of Waldowood 2010 featured the commercial plaza area, the commercial plaza subway station, as well as a the original Waldowood train station (near bottom of picture). Drivers could visit the relocated Esso station, adjacent to the subwayline and across from the Levitton building.

Amusement Park

The new E-zone united two amusement park rides, several eateries, and the new C-Factory Dome stadium. The E-Zone included a (much smaller) ferris wheel,which created controversy among residents who remembered the financial failure of the Millenium ferris wheel 10 years earlier.
The M&M Dome and an original Waldowood sign (see center of picture) also found their new homes in this area.

Restaurant Curve

Restaurant Curve united Waldowood 2010’s three eateries and placed them adjacent to the C-Factory Dome and the two amusement park rides.

Defense Reserve

The Defense Reserve, missing from Waldowood 2009, returned this year to proudly stand on guard on a high location, directly behind the M&M Dome.

Strange Happenings

Strange things continued to happen in Santa Claus Park in Waldowood 2010 as can been seen in the deliberately blurred photograph.

Snowman Village

The Alpine Village is no more. Waldowood 2010 officials renamed the remains of that village the Snowman Village and moved it to Underground Waldowood.

Airport Embarrassmen

The President’s trip to Waldowood had to be aborted when Air Force One caused a major separation in the main runway at the airport.
